Joel worked 6 sessions with our 20 week old Lab. Our puppy was energic and basically out of control. Joel's calm demeanor and confident/kind/contolled instructional sessions were just what our dog needed. During the second week we saw marked improvement in compliance and control. Joel also was available for advice and knowledgeable about little things to help improve our control and dog management. I would highly recommend Joel for your dog training and please feel free to connect with me for further info. 704 724 0234 Thanks. John Wyllie

We have had only one session with Lena and have already seen amazing results with our 1 y.o. dog. Lena gives hands-on training to you and your dog. We are training our pup to be a therapy dog, and he is already well on his way to having the skills needed to pass the test. Well done Lena Skov! Glad we found you on Thumbtack!!!

We were so very pleased w Kevin’s work with our puppy. Can’t say enough good things. We did the 10 day plan for general obedience training for the puppy. The change in his behavior is amazing (and he was already a good puppy). Kevin picked him up and brought him home daily. Worked with him at our house, his house, and in public. Focused on areas we wanted but included other important issues we didn’t think of. He sent us multiple videos of training daily with explanations. We loved these and they taught us a lot. He also met with us with the dog to instruct us. Always wanted to make sure we understood what to do and why. We feel both the dog and us have a great foundation now to continue training. Would highly recommend.

We were so pleased with how things went when we left our dogs in Laura's care! I appreciated how she visited beforehand to meet them, and how she took detailed notes on everything. One of our dogs tends to be very anxious and I could tell that he felt totally comfortable and safe while in Laura's care. She really is a compassionate professional who listens - I highly recommend her services!

We had a great overall experience with Glenn as he trained our dog and us. :) Glenn was patient, well-informed and friendly. He answered all of our follow-up questions throroughly and made sure we felt comfortable throughout the training process. The one caveat I would suggest is to establish a communication plan upfront with him. Once we addressed that email was his preferred channel, things went more smoothly. We would recommend Glenn and his family to anyone looking for an educated dog trainer!

After almost 4 months of trying to deal with our Golden Retriever puppy not listening to us, jumping up onto the couches, surfing the counters, wandering upstairs and chewing on everything, we finally decided it was time to find a professional to work with him. We received Paul's number from our vet, and boy are we glad we did! Paul has been nothing short of amazing! He came to our house every morning for 4 weeks straight to train our puppy and work with him one-on-one. Toward the end of training, Paul even took him to the park and hardware store many days to allow for distractions. He showed my husband and I exactly the kind of training he was doing with our dog and let us know exactly what we needed to do in order to keep our dog in tip-top shape for the rest of our lives. It was incredible to see the transformation of our puppy over those 4 weeks. He now knows the commands- heel, sit, down, sitting at entryways, place, off and free. Also, his behavior has improved significantly. We couldn't be happier with our decision to use Paul. His professionalism, dedication, positive attitude and excellence in dog training certainly make him what he is- "The Dog Professor!" And the best part is there is a lifetime guarantee- if our puppy regresses in any way, we just call Paul up and he will be back to train him! If you are looking for that right person to change both your's and your dog's life for the best, please do yourself a favor and call Paul! This is one decision you will not regret! Thank you, Paul, for everything you have done to make our lives so much easier and happier with our pup!

We had a great experience. It was very apparent our 6 month-old little beagle did too. He came home so happy. He had learned many things needed to become a good family pet. Now, if we, the humans, can follow our instructions to keep reinforcing the learning. You know, it's hard to teach an old dog (human) new tricks. Heather was great with Shylo and we would recommend her to anyone looking for super dog training.

Dog Envy changed our lives for the better!! Georgia, our boxer/bulldog mix was a very difficult, stubborn dog that we determined was "untrainable". Dog Envy changed that! We chose the Board & Train option with Samantha as our trainer. The difference in our dog is amazing! Samantha did a wonderful job not only training Georgia but educating our entire family on how to work with our new commands. I would recommend Dog Envy to anyone who needs training for their dog and especially for those with a difficult dog.

Betsy started working with our four year old Golden, and our two year old Labradoodle to teach them appropriate loose lease training. The dogs absolutely adore her, and have improved tremendously in their skills. Betsy is attentive to how to improve the process of getting their leashes on when they are so excited, to constant training with them and myself on what to expect is necessary to immediately correct in order for training to be success. I cannot say enough nice things about Betsy's work, but simply seeing the improvement in walking the dogs is amazing. You will not regret hiring Instinct Canine Services to work with your beloved pets.

Liz (and Meritt) did an awesome job of training Spartacus - our cockapoo - and us! What they do at CCT is everything a dog owner would want - they truly love what they do and it shows in how they help dogs be such great family members and how Spartacus loves going there for socializing and training with other dogs. I could not imagine having a dog without them.

I have a GIANT dog breed, that being a Great Dane. Typically I would never leave town without him, until I found Lauren. Great Danes are typically very loyal to one person and mine is that way which makes them hard to find a sitter who can first create the bond and second understand how to manage a dog that is over 6 feet tall on his back legs and weights 140lbs. She was able to gain his trust instantly which made the decision to go on vacation twice as easy knowing that he was in GREAT hands and she loved him as if he was her own.

    Dog is a female husky mix with TONS of energy. She's good in the house but pays almost no attention to us when she's outside. Digs in the backyard. Pulls the leash a lot, even with the "gentle lead" and in spite of our training efforts. Big separation anxiety problem has lead to some damages in the walls.
